Borrowing Equipment

Daniels Faculty students and faculty may borrow photography and AV equipment for short-term use. To sign out a piece of equipment, you must first create a ticket. It can then be signed-out from the Technology Services office in room 177, 1 Spadina Cres., during work hours. Equipment must be returned to the same office. The borrower is responsible for the equipment while it is in their possession.

Typically equipment has to be returned on the same day before 5:00 pm. In special cases, equipment may be signed-out over night or over the weekend. Late return of the equipment is governed by the same rules as library’s short-term loans. Late fees are estimated at $8/day. The charge will apply to printing account of the borrower. You are the only person authorized to use this equipment while you have signed it out. Individuals will be held responsible for any damaged or missing equipment.
